The Silence of the Canines

Exhibiting Artists: Boo Sze Yang

Venue: Utterly Art 229A South Bridge Road > venue details

Dates: 21 Sep 2006 - 01 Oct 2006

The Silence of the Canines brings together in a single exhibition one of Boo's major series of work - the Watchdog series, which usually feature a desultory dog as sentinel, a Big Brother self-portrait of the artist peering through his spectacles, and assorted fragmented nudes. The emblem of the Watchdog functions as a double-edged sword - being both Guardian/Protector as well as Censor/Monitor - performing acts of defense, but also of suppression.
